Company Picnic

What makes my day is when I see employees mingle and bring their families to a company picnic.   Main Stream Events and PR Firm had the honor of working with a new client in Hopewell, VA. 

Colonial DJ's provided the music and games to keep the party going for six hours.    Walter Baker did a fabulous job. Nanny's Restaurant provided the BBQ and sides which were fantastic. Scotty's Ice Cream Truck was I think the hit of the event with free ice cream all day.   Six hours of unlimited ice cream and because it was 84 degrees, I know many went back three or four times, but who was counting. Bounce 2 the Moon provided the inflatables and spin art.

Vivid Expressions provided the caricature artist and Patrick had a steady flow of people the entire time.  He did such a great job and these pictures could have been framed.  Awesome job.

James River Transportation provided the shuttle service for employees to tour the plant with a great security guided tour.   Each tour was very informative and the families that went enjoyed the experience.

Christina Cox was the official EMT and a great day with no injuries is always good in my book. My team was amazing as always and could not have done it without Kelly, Laura, and Christina.
